What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Festival Tycoon is developed mainly by a single person - me, and so far the game is playable but still a long way from complete! Right now you can create and manage your own festivals, but in the future, you will be able to build on your successes to create bigger and better events while unlocking new opportunities along the way.
If you like the look of the game and think it has the potential to be something great, I would like to invite you along for the journey, your support and feedback are the most important pieces of the puzzle. Either way, you can expect the Early Access version to be continuously expanded and improved, it's the base for all the great features waiting to be added!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Festival Tycoon will be in Early Access for about six months give or take a month. It depends on how quickly I can roll out updates.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version is basically the base for all other features. I will be adding a lot more things to the game - from buildings to bands. Additional (top secret) mechanics will also be introduced during the Early Access period”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version offers the core gameplay elements of Festival Tycoon. The focus is on the base of every festival: The layout, line-up and visitors”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will gradually increase as I add new content and/or features. There will be announcements beforehand.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Please feel free to join my Discord server and have a chat about the game and the development process. This is the place where I am most active and where you can communicate and exchange with other fans!”

About This Game

Grow your music festival from a backyard bonanza into an unmissable global event, working with bands and brands to build an excellent reputation and rake in the biggest of bucks! Or if that’s too much trouble, just hop into sandbox mod and create gorgeous voxel-art festivals to your heart’s content.

Hire a range of bands across the likes of folk, rock and techno, balancing a finite budget against your own good taste. Ignore these rockstar’s requests at your own peril - the bigger the act, the bigger the ego!

From toilets to tents, bungalows to bars, there’s a huge amount to consider when designing the perfect festival ground. Nice views make happy customers, so make sure your venue is pretty as well as practical!

With great contracts comes great responsibility. Sponsors might fund your dream production, but they come with high demands.

Cultivate your crowd - are you gonna set up a big campground and pull in loads of happy campers, or build high-class bungalows for the snooty VIPs? Whatever you do, make sure everyone is satisfied, or else risk a flaying on social media!
